WEEK TWO— PIVOT! PROGRAM CHANGES ANNOUNCED:
Due to Covid concerns within the orchestra, programming for the closing weekend of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music has shifted. Details are below:

Saturday, August 6, 7pm, Moonlight

Valentin Silvestrov: Silent Music
Kevin Puts: Moonlight: Second Concerto for Oboe & Strings (Katherine Needleman, oboe)
Christopher Rouse: Ogoun Badagris
Richard Danielpour: Apparitions

This evening’s program features composer Kevin Puts’ Moonlight, a concerto for oboe and string orchestra inspired by the film and its themes of resilience and compassion. Moonlight features the virtuosic oboe soloist Katherine Needleman, for whom the work is written. Richard Danielpour’s Apparitions for string orchestra and percussion is a collection of pieces inspired by fantasies, dream, and stories of the supernatural. Valentin Silvestrov’s Silent Music for string orchestra is a beautiful work by Ukraine’s most famous living composer, who recently fled the war in Ukraine. The Festival’s superstar percussionists take centerstage in Christopher Rouse’s exhilarating Ogoun Badagris, a work deriving its inspiration from Haitian drumming pattern; and Andrea Reinkemeyer’s percussion quartet entitled #@&%!* (expletive deleted).

MID AMERICA FREEDOM BAND >>

Dr. Lee Hartman, director

Commissioned for the Sleigh Rides Old and New Project:
"Whether titled sleigh ride, troika, schlittenfahrt, or galop, the holiday season brings an avalanche of pieces with sleigh bells and dashing-through-the-snow clip-clops. The history of musical sleigh rides stretches back to the Baroque era with countless composers contributing to the genre. MAFB takes it a step further and has commissioned a cadre of today’s best and brightest composers to contribute their own take on a sleigh ride to continue this novelty genre’s legacy. Be there with bells on!"

METROPOLITAN YOUTH SYMPHONY >>
Dr. Raúl Gómez Rojas, conductor

  • World premiere of Rhythms in Motion a work by The Authentic Voice composer Rohan Srinivasan, a 2021 graduate of Sunset High school who now attends the Juilliard School of Music in New York City.

  • Smoulder, by Andrea Reinkemeyer (b. 1976). This American composer’s work has been described as “clever, funky, jazzy and virtuosic” (Detroit News, Daily Gazette). Dr. Reinkemeyer serves as Associate Professor of Music Composition & Theory at Linfield University, and her piece Smoulder evokes the devastation of forest fires and other ominous signs of climate change.

  • Symphony No.1, Afro-American, by William Grant Still (1895 – 1978). Written in 1930, this was the first symphony by a Black composer to be performed by a major orchestra — the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in 1931. The symphony boldly combines the conventions of jazz, blues and spirituals with the classic tradition.

  • A performance by MYS’ Concerto Competition winner.

Tickets are also available on the Portland’5 website.
